* It's hard to tell whether this trope is in play or Robo-Yay but in ''VideoGame/MarveVSCapcomInfinite'', [[VideoGame/MegamanX Sigma]] is very impressed with ComicBook/{{Ultron}} and his code while Ultron praises Sigma's as well. When they both meet up, they decided to ''merge with each other'' by having Ultron beheading Sigma who dives right inside Ultron and mix both of their codes together, creating [[BigBad Ultron-Sigma]].

** Barry and their HeterosexualLifePartner relationship. At the end of the first telephone conversation he hangs up "I love you" and after he joins the story physically (NB: he flew over to Alan the moment he felt something was amiss) he takes Alice's previous role (i.e. being a damsel/sidekick combo).

* Alexander and [[spoiler:Daniel]] in ''VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent''. Alexander speaks tenderly to him and is surprisingly attached to him despite [[spoiler:the fact that Alexander isn't even human and sees humanity as insects]]. Mega points for Alexander waking him up for a nightmare and comforting [[spoiler:Daniel]] in his bed.

*** Even the Liliths in the castle get in on the Yay ("Let's play, cutie!"). The Werebats, too ("Let's play, cute little kitty~"), AND the spider-women. ("You look DELICIOUS!" They ARE trying to eat you, but they still say it in a very lustful way.)

** In ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaHarmonyOfDespair'', Dracula will use a different cry at the beginning of his boss battle if you engage him as Alucard. "Come, my son; let us embrace!" Because that isn't awkward or disturbing at all...
** In ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaChroniclesOfSorrow Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow]]'', Dmitri implies that Genya wants to protect Soma at least in part due to [[spoiler: affection he still harbors for Dracula.]]
** In the radio drama "Nocturne of Recollection," there are serious ho yay vibes between Alucard and Lyudmil with lines like, [[spoiler: Lyudmil: "Master Alucard, I will always be here, forever… somewhere close to your heart."]] and [[spoiler:Lyudmil: "Once a year, the youths would make a garland with these flowers and present them to young girls to express their love." Alucard: "This wasn’t mentioned in Mother’s diary…" Lyudmil: "Since we are here, why not let me teach you how to make a garland." Alucard: "No need." Lyudmil: "I see…" ]] There's also mild ho yay between Alexis and Cyril, and between Magnus and Lyudmil/Alucard but that's hardly a surprise considering Magnus is an incubus.

** The first thing Dracula says when he is revived in ''Belmont Legacy'' comic is "Belmont! You are mine!". And his (naked) resurrection, which immediately precedes that line, is intercut with said Belmont and his new bride consummating their marriage.
** Hugh and Nathan of ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaCircleOfTheMoon'' are rivalslash-tastic - when your happily married straight male friend announces that Hugh has it bad for Nathan and the subtext is far too large for the Gameboy screen to contain, you know you are not simply seeing things. Dracula is rather - something at Morris Baldwin, too.

* In ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'', both Solaire and Rhea have shades of this with the player character. If you speak to Solaire in Anor Londo, he'll jokingly assume that you like him. Similarly, when [[spoiler: Petrus]] confesses to deliberately abandoning Rhea in the Tomb Of The Giants, his comments seem to imply that you have feelings for her. This happens regardless of player gender.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' when Morrigan was absorbing a dying Lilith into her being (Lilith ''is'' [[spoiler:one-third of Morrigan's soul that was sealed away and then took on human form]]) they have quite the suggestive pose, especially given they're both are HornyDevils that wear {{Stripperific}} outfits.

** Part the first had {{A|ctionGirl}}rgilla gaining an instantly fast rapport with Jinana, a [[HonorBeforeReason rival tribe leader]], the two having conversations about "Sadness" - having only been recently awakened to emotions. [[spoiler:When she dies, she calls Argilla [[ArcWords "Comrade"]], a very emotionally charged word in their world]]. Later on, while Argilla bawls her eyes out, [[{{Jerkass}} Heat]] sarcastically calls Jinana "Argilla's Girlfriend". Bat talking about [[spoiler:devouring Jinana]] acts as Argilla's BerserkButton.

** In ''VisualNovel/DisgaeaInfinite'', but Mao does it ''again'', with Laharl (debatably, almost ''all'' of his conversation with Laharl is made with a flirtatious tone).
-->'''Mao:'''You're too good to be true! I must capture and examine you~!* huff* * huff ** drool*
** ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 4|APromiseUnforgotten}}'' had enough to warrant [[HoYay/Disgaea4APromiseUnforgotten its own page]]
* In the hybrid board game/RPG ''VideoGame/DokaponKingdom'', the heroes, regardless of gender, are competing for the Princess' hand in marriage. At the end of the game, if a girl wins, the King objects - though the Princess says she really doesn't mind. The King then dons a wedding dress and offers to marry you instead, as he wants a bloodline. This doesn't go over very well, and the final shot of the game seems to imply that the Princess and her heroine went through with the marriage anyway.
* In ''VideoGame/DragonQuestHeroesRocketSlime'', Hooly's mother, as with all the captive slimes, sends a letter when rescued. In it she mentions that Hooly "Sends his lo... says hi." Though, with her tendency to embarrass him, it may simply be poor wording on her part.

** Yaha, one of the guardians of the Districts, ''openly admits'' at least three times during the boss fight that in the past, he had a crush on Urick, a former member of the Knights of the Seal, and that he [[spoiler:made his pact with the gnomes]] in order to win Urick's love once and for all. But Urick rejected him. So now Yaha is sad. And really campy. Ironically, during the boss fight [[spoiler:Yaha insinuates that Urick returned his feelings '''before''' Yaha made the pact.]]
** Urick and Nowe seem far too friendly in their dialogue for just old friends. Direct your attention, if you will, towards [[spoiler:Urick's death scene, where Nowe '''holds Urick in his arms''' as Urick lies there dying, and then lovingly deposits his body in the funeral pyre of the burning Holy Flowers.]]

** Ling Tong and Gan Ning have too many moments to count. There's one battle in particular in ''Dynasty Warriors 6'' where if you kill one half of the pair, the other is consumed by UnstoppableRage. Incidentally, this is ''exactly'' the same reaction you get from Lu Bu when you kill his canon LoveInterest Diao Chan. They're all but canon in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GaUC8sqPTs Ling Tong's ending]] in Dynasty Warriors 6 Special, especially in their final scene together.

* ''VideoGame/GodOfWar'' has Deimos, Kratos' brother; check the original ''GOW'' at the end of the credit's theme, as well as the main trailer for ''GOW: Ghost of Sparta''.
** "Ascension" has Kratos and Orkos. The ho yay between them shows up when Orkos shows concern for Kratos' emotional well being several times throughout the game, going as far as saving Kratos from the furies several times. At the end of the game, Orkos tells Kratos to kill him in order to free Kratos from Ares' grip on him and Kratos is obviously reluctant to do this, considering Orkos "innocent blood" before Orkos forces Kratos' hand. Kratos even goes as far as building a funeral pyre for Orkos and being its sole mourner.

* {{A|rtificialHuman}}moretta and [[CuteWitch Lillet's]] relationship in ''VideoGame/GrimGrimoire'' is full of this. Amoretta's first meeting with Lillet seems to show her developing an outright [[SchoolgirlLesbians girl crush]] on the heroine, which includes her saying the line, "I like your smile. Can I touch it?" and Lillet nervously agreeing to it. It's explicitly established that Amoretta lives because of [[ThePowerOfLove Lillet's love sustaining her]] (it's complicated), and [[spoiler:Amoretta's deaths]] are more devastating to Lillet than any of the others. [[spoiler:They do wind up together near the End Game... sort of. And they ''live together'' in the post game epilogue.]]

* Both Rean and Crow's relationship in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel II'' is entirely made out of this trope as Rean's first thoughts [[AsleepForDays after waking up a month]] was about Crow, though granted [[spoiler:he was beaten up by Crow.]] But then we get to [[CoolShip the Pantagruel]] where Crow cooks for Rean and makes up with him, then gives Rean a [[AffectionateGestureToTheHead head pat]] which to the ''Cold Steel'' fandom, means that Rean's fallen in love with Crow as the head patting symbolizes the girls getting attracted to Rean whenever he does this to them. And then there's the final bonding scene with any of his classmates, Towa, Alfin, and Sara and they still manage to find a way to make Rean think of Crow. [[spoiler: Then there's the fact that the only CombinationAttack in the game is with Rean and Crow in their respective [[HumongousMecha Divine Knights.]]

* ''VideoGame/PAYDAY2'': Quite a bit, especially for a first-person shooter. Wolf and Hoxton have a charming variety of pet names for each other, Jimmy will cheerfully declare his love for anyone who picks him up after getting downed, and Chains cracks a joke about Dallas and Dragan being a cute couple after they bicker like an old married couple in one of the character trailers. Added to this is the Safe House upgrade, which has special areas dedicated to each of the heisters, but also has a nice living room and dining area big enough for everyone.
